The Department of Entomology offers undergraduate programs leading to either the B.S. or the B.A. degree. The B.S. degree offers students with a strong interest in the natural sciences an opportunity to emphasize this aspect of their education. The B.A. degree is available to students who wish to obtain a broader background in the humanities and social sciences than is required of students in the B.S. program.
Information on the programs and course requirements is available at CNAS Academic Advising Center, 1223 Pierce Hall. Counseling, course recommendations, and information on education and career goals are provided by the Undergraduate Faculty Advisors.
